Pundit Bhimsen Joshi - 1922 –-2011 Bhimsen.jpg

Pundit Bhimsen Gururaj Joshi was an Indian vocalist in the Hindustani classical tradition. He received the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour in 2008
His craving for music was evident even as a child. A bhajan (devotional songs) singing procession or ‘azan’ ( Islamic prayer) from a nearby mosque would draw him out of the house.  His first performance was at the age of 19 in1941.
Bhimsen Joshi was widely recognized in India due to his performance in the Mile Sur Mera Tumhara music video (1985), which begins with him. The video was created for the purpose of national integration in India, and highlights the diversity of Indian culture. Bhimsen Joshi was also a part of Jana Gana Mana ( National Anthem) produced by A. R. Rahman on the occasion of 50th year of Indian Republic.
This eminent Hindustani Classical musician left for his heavenly abode on 24 January 2011
